Organize a green event, useful tips
To transform our lunch (or our dinner) into a green event, we need to follow some good environmental practices, such as:
- eliminate meat from the menu
- eliminate artifact foods
- eliminate disposables or use biodegradable plastic ones
- deliver the invitation only by email
- at the table, open a debate about the importance of the fight against climate change
- served at the table only Organic products and communicate it to all diners
- served at the table only zero km products and communicate it to all diners
- buy food from a small local retailer, perhaps a self-employed farmer. In this case, the products will almost certainly not bear the organic brand but will be just as genuine.
- When you go out to shop, try to do it on foot, by public transport, by bike ... if you have problems of space you can try to organize a car-sharing ad hoc for your needs (read here)
- Share the success of yours ethical lunch with as many people as possible: post photos on facebook that underline the genuineness of the products used ... I bet there will be many "I like it"!
- If it is not enough for you to share the event with your Facebook friends but you want to share it with the internal world, try joining the campaign "Cultivate of Oxfam Italia“
